Yesterday's issue on forgiveness hadn't even all been mailed before Vicki asked for quotes on Forgiving Oneself.

Van's signature

The quotes:

How unhappy is he who cannot forgive himself.
     - Publilius Syrus

If you haven't forgiven yourself something, how can you forgive others?
     - Dolores Huerta

To understand is to forgive - even oneself.
     - Alexander Chase

In all the work we do, our most valuable asset can be the attitude of self-examination. It is forgivable to make mistakes, but to stand fast behind a wall of self-righteousness and make the same mistake twice is not forgivable.
     - Dr. Dale E. Turner

Forgive many things in others; nothing in yourself.
     - Ausonius
